how much weight are you supposed to gain?

Hi mummies! I've entered 2nd trimester and now gaining alot of weight. I used to weigh 58kg before pregnancy, 50kg in my 1st trimester (the nausea and vomiting was really bad, and I had no appetite), and now I weigh 55kg in my 2nd trimester because I'm eating more frequently. Is such weight fluctuations bad? And how much weight do u gain throughout pregnancy?

On average 7 to 10 kg weight gain during the whole pregnancy but again it depends on individual. If ur gynae has no issue with your weight gain amount then it’s fine. :)

I gained almost 11kg from the 2nd trimester 🤦🏼‍♀️ gynae checked and said it’s fine. I guess it varies between individuals

Super Mum

As long as your gynae has no issue, should be ok
